Hunter Broke Fordwich Region

Broke Fordwich surrounds the towns of Broke, Fordwich, Milbrodale and Bulga. Some of the oldest vines in the Hunter Valley were planted in 1924 around the village of Fordwich. The Broke Fordwich subregion, one of three in the Hunter Valley lies between the Upper Hunter Valley Region to the northwest and the lower Hunter Valley Region (including Pokolbin) to the east. Broke Fordwich is sheltered on the south side of the valley on the Fordwich Sill volcanic red clay and nearby free-draining alluvial soils and sandy loam. It has lower rainfall and higher diurnal temperature variation than Pokolbin. Most of the Broke Fordwich area extends along Wollombi Brook near the suburb of Pokolbin. Many of the vineyards of the area are located on the undulating hills around the villages of Broke and Bulga leading up to the southwestern edge of the Brokenback range. The large Yellow Rock escarpment that border Broke also has numerous vineyards and is the regions dominant geographical feature. The area is one of the warmest in the Lower Hunter with some continental influences due to extenuating foothills of the Brokenback range. The scenic Broke Fordwich stretch of the Wollombi Brook has quietly developed into a quality wine tourism region where visitors can enjoy premium wines, fresh olive oils and innovative farm gate products.

The Broke Fordwich Region is home to 4 districts: Bulga ; Broke ; Paynes Crossing ; Fordwich
